We've No Interest in 'Targeting' Sinn Fein - RNU

A Chairde,

Over Easter, influential members of Sinn Fein were pretty vocal in assasinating the integrity of so-called Dissident Republican Groups. As such, I felt the need to respond.

A Chairde,

Over Easter, influential members of Sinn Fein were pretty vocal in assasinating the integrity of so-called Dissident Republican Groups. As such, I felt the need to respond.

Firstly, let me inform your readers about the origins of the The Republican Network for Unity (RNU). We were formed in 2007 as a direct result of Provisional Sinn Fein’s endorsement of British policing in Ireland. Since then, our Network has become a Socialist-Republican political pressure/lobby group. We are not a political Party and are not constituted as such. Although relatively a new group, RNU is firmly rooted in the Republican Struggle with many ex-Political Prisoners and former Combatants as valued members. We are committed to the democratic socialist Irish Republic as outlined in the 1916 Proclamation and 1919 Declaration of Independence. RNU oppose the Belfast Agreement and all other British attempts to subvert the Irish people’s right to national self-determination.

Each and every Easter, Irish Republicans march to graveyards and monuments to commemorate our Patriot dead, not to engage in the demonisation of former comrades. According to the Provisionals, RNU and other political groups are the same as the various armed groups. Something which the same people used to strongly argue against, when Unionist Politicians claimed that Sinn Fein is the IRA. Nowadays, senior S/F figures use the same type of damming language to describe alternative Republicans. I’d like to remind those engaged in felon setting, it was wrong in the past and is still wrong.

In spite of the electoral growth of Sinn Fein, the Irish working-class continue to suffer huge social and economic problems. Whilst failed Politicians, corrupt Bankers and greedy Developers still live in luxury. Imperialism and the British occupation continue to ruin communities throughout this island.The Leinster House and Stormont Parliaments have done nothing to end centuries of criminal enterprise in Ireland.

RNU has no interest in ‘targeting Sinn Fein’, we are dedicated to highlight the truth behind imperialism in Ireland. We cannot accept a bleak future for the young, limited wages for workers, inadequate housing for families, lack of funding for Students and no proper pensions for senior citizens. Our Network will continue to expose oppressive British laws to subjugate Irish people, Non-Jury Courts, Internment by Remand, Plastic Bullets, Political Policing and MI5 on Irish soil. Instead of engaging in the demonisation of Republicans, Sinn Fein would be better helping them achieve a restoration of our national sovereignty.

Is Mise,

Martin Óg Meehan

Republican Network for Unity
